My Morning Jacket’s Jim James to Play Obama Benefit
Contrary to the title of his band’s new album, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James has some pretty decent urges, too. One of those urges is to play a show benefiting Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and that’s just what he’ll do on October 8.
That night, at Schubas Tavern in Chicago, James will play an all-acoustic set for anyone willing to pay $100 per ticket. Preceding James’ performance will be a reception with Obama campaign chief of staff Jim Messina.
